Totally Sweet Titmice

The Tufted Titmouse is such an appealing and cute little bird that I just welcome seeing these little grey birds every day.  They are musical, fun to watch and pretty intelligent.  They love eating Sunflower Seeds from the bird feeder that is next to the porch.  First, the Titmouse will fly to the porch railing, then hop to the top of the metal bird feeder pole and finally down to the feeder to grab a favored seed.  Once the bird has the seed, it flies up to the porch railing to crack the shell of the Sunflower Seed against the top of the wooden railing.

Sometimes, the birds will fly about on the porch and land on a small temporary greenhouse shelving unit where I start vegetable seeds.  It makes a fine perch!  Recently I have been seeing pairs of the Tufted Titmice together at the feeder or on the porch.  Must be the Mr. and Mrs. who have a nest in the Oaks next to the pond here.  I am happy to have such a busy bird feeder!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    i like these guys and gals, too. such pretty large eyes.

  2. The last picture takes my breath away. With the flying…the scalloping on the wings and the light shining through them. Funny, flight pictures are the hardest to take. But I do think that is your specialty, you do them better than any other kind.

  3. That’s certainly one of the cutest of all birds.

  4. I see quite a few of these–love watching them!

  5. Love the Titmouse, they are such sweet birds. Love the photos.
